In the world of music, originality is the key to success. Singers often create music that is unique and has a style that is synonymous with their name. However, there have been instances where singers have tried to cover songs originally sung by legendary singers, only to ruin the essence of the song. Recently, a video of a person went viral, where he was seen singing a song originally crooned by Sting. While sitting in the audience row, and the song was getting murdered right in front of Sting himself.
The video caused a stir in the music industry and prompted reactions from various celebrities. One such reaction came from Indian music composer and singer A.R Rahman. He took to Twitter and shared the video, saying, "I have been there." It was an acknowledgment of the fact that he, too, has witnessed people singing his songs in a completely bad manner, thus destroying the originality of his work.
Rahman is an iconic music composer in Bollywood, known for his unique and soulful compositions. He has been the recipient of numerous accolades, including two Academy Awards, two Grammy Awards, a BAFTA Award, and a Golden Globe, to name a few. With a career spanning over three decades, Rahman has composed music for more than 200 films in various languages.
The music industry is constantly evolving, and new talent emerges every day. However, there are times when singers fail to pay tribute to the originality of a song, thus destroying the soul of the music. This can be frustrating for the composers who have put their heart and soul into creating the song.
